Diana Madaras “Nandi” Event
You are invited to a special “Nandi” event! Join renowned Tucson artist Diana Madaras in Expedition Tanzania for an unveiling of her eagerly anticipated “Nandi” painting. You’ll have the opportunity to meet Diana Madaras, as well as watch the elephants enjoy enrichment items on exhibit, and enter our Nandi coloring contest to win prizes. Elephant keepers and Education staff will be on hand to share information about the Zoo’s elephant herd, and how the Zoo contributes to elephant conservation in the wild.
The photo Diana Madaras used as inspiration for her painting was selected by Zoo fans in a Facebook contest. Nandi merchandise will be available for purchase at this event including ornaments and prints. There will be a special Nandi poster available to the first 250 purchasers signed by Diana. Fifty percent of the proceeds will benefit Reid Park Zoo.
All these activities are free with admission to the Zoo.
